“Amazing Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

I had read reviews about Crave and after travelling for 3 months was in need of a decent burger. I hired a scooter and went in search for Crave. After been led on a wild goose chase by the locals I got to see a lot of Koh Phangan whilst on my search for Crave, 3hrs of searching later I finally found the restaurant so had built up a good hunger. Here's a tip, make sure you have at least the address before you go out to find a restaurant as a name simply isn't enough. Anyway I was privileged enough to get to enjoy one of their burgers and what a great burger it was. I highly recommend this place. The staff are fantastic and really make you feel welcome. The chang is cold and the burgers are to die for. Thanks so much guys, it was AMAZING.

What a journey to get to us but I'm happy you were finally satisfied!!! I know that you even came back a second time and it means a lot because you were staying at the other end of the island. Glad our burger and staff made all this time and gasoline worth spending!!!

“Excellent off the beaten track dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

We went there twice and would have gone a third time if it hadn't been closed- partly because we were living at the sunset hill resort and it was close by but mainly because the food was amazing. I know it's supposed to be a western joint so we tried a burger and poutine but my husband also tried a Thai green curry and it was simple yet out of this world. They have these inventive cocktails and sangrias. The layout is very relaxed and there are a bunch of games (pool table, board games, etc.) to keep you entertained. The staff are very friendly (though one gentleman was very thrilled to tell us about his Canadian girlfriend!) and seemed to genuinely care about providing a happy and relaxed atmosphere. The prices are really reasonable. You could order, eat, spend a few hours here, catch a snooze and wake up and while away some more time...

We always like happy returning customers! Sorry we were closed on your third time! The curries were indeed fantastic but we decided to focus on the western food on our new menu since you could get amazing local food all over thailand. Thanks for a great review.

“Perfect escape into Western food”

If you get tired of Thai food, this is the place to eat some burgers, chips and stuff... Nice souses as well. Very nice ambiance and kind staff... There are also some games available if you get bored...

Thank you Rada for your kind words. We like to make people feel at home and feed them food that they are craving for while away in Thailand. The laid back atmosphere is also well appreciated by our visitors.

“Quite simply the best burgers. Ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Not only the best burgers, but the best western food you'll get in Thailand. I'm addicted. Worth travelling across the Island for.

Also excellent vegetarian options. Seriously delicious.

The Canadian girls who run it are so warm, friendly and downright awesome (and the rest of the staff).

Its also got a great atmosphere and awesome to hang out in. Great infused alcoholic drinks. You're simply crazy if you don't go!

“Great mood, awsome coffee, and pool table”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

We love this place, though it closed for awhile the 2nd day we were there. They had really fun fatty foods, and a pool table. We sat there for about 2 hours, had a few beers as well, overall a nice place

Thanks Gil for taking the time to review us. Sorry that you couldn't come more often while you were on the island. Each year we close in october or november so we can go home for a while. Maybe see you again on another holiday!
